History[edit]

Prior to its acquisition by Big Fish Broadcasting in 2008, the station carried a religious radio format with the WLUA callsign. Starting in early 2008, it began simulcasting sister station WYOR, "Your 94" and its Variety Hits format.

The station adopted the WABB call sign on November 9, 2012, after it was dropped from WTKD in Mobile, Alabama.

Due to technical problems, this station has operated only briefly since May 2012 and is off the air as of November 2013.
